Great stay and great food

I stayed in their hostel as well as ate in their restaurant. Hostel - great stay, rooms were all single beds and I had a locker to secure my belongings. Bathrooms need a little TLC but for the price i can't fault it as accommodation can be pretty pricey in this area. It's in a super noisy... read more

We went there with our friends for dinner and we really enjoyed it. They already new the place which also proves that it's good if they wanted to come back :) For starter we just had chips(kind of) with mango chutney and they were good and not too spicy. Then we all had curry. I had shrimp curry and everyone... More

Had the prawn dumplings and guacamole for starters, they took quite a while to come and were very small portions. Then had the grilled prawns and chicken curry for main - both were tasty but you had to peel the prawns and they were covered in sauce. Its a pretty chilled hostel vibe but not sure if it quite warranted... More

Wonderful menu, tasty meals of high quality, nice atmosphere...just make sure you make your booking, otherwise no chance to have dinner there. A bit longer waiting to get serverd (as it is so busy there).

Gutted we only found this place a couple of days before we left. Food was tasty and plenty of it, great value too, music was awesome and sitting on the chill out area at the front people watching was great fun. The Staff were very happy and friendly and I would recommend trying the Pink Elephant, one of our favourite... More

The restaurant is cute but the service is not great. It took over 1 hour to get some eggs and toast. The eggs were not cooked well and they did not have other type of bread except for white bread.

Highly recommend by other travelers we booked a table at the pink elephant! On arrival the table wasn't ready what can happen of course but the majority of the staff wasn't showing any problem solving skills or hospitality. After we got an other table we ordered. The food was of average quality, pretty flat taste and not a lot of... More
